Love Will Bring Me Back Again.
Copyright, MDCCCXCIV, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words and Music by J. P. Skelly.

A sailor stood on the silent shore,
His loving lassie by his side:
His ship would sail with the morning's light
To lands across the ocean wide.
His heart was sad as he saw the tears
Fall from her eyes, her cheek to stain;
"Don't grieve, sweetheart, tho' we must part;
True love will bring me back again."

Love will bring me back again over the ocean wide,
Ever fondly to remain close by my darling's side;
Though care may dim your loving eyes, looking for me in vain,
Remember this, with parting kiss, love will bring rue back again.

He sailed away at the dawn of day,
His love still loth from him to part:
She watched the ship till 'twas out of eight,
Then turned away with aching heart.
The sailor boy to his vow was true,
He sent this message o'er the main:
"Cheer up, my own, though left alone,
True love will bring me back again." -Chorus.

The years went by, but no tidings came
Of him that lassie held so dear;
In silent prayer she breathed his name,
While waiting there in hope and fear
At last he came, with glowing face,
Upon his lips that glad refrain:
"Oh, sweetheart mine, my joy divine.
True love has brought me back again." - Chorus.
